The construction team behind Gosford's Bonython Tower has won three major awards at the 2019 Master Builders Association Newcastle Building Awards.
Stevens Construction scooped the pool, picking up Commercial Projects Over $10 Million, Interior and Shop Fit Outs Over $600,000 before claiming the grandest award of the night – the Commercial Builder of the Year Award – in recognition of the company's dedication to excellence in the development of large-scale commercial projects.
"The Bonython project offered an opportunity to showcase our 31 years of experience and outstanding abilities in large-scale commercial construction projects," says Steven Mailey, director of Stevens Construction.
"The development has a strong focus on sustainability, innovative street activation features and is the tallest building in the local landscape. The office suites and shared facilities have been cleverly designed to promote collaboration and cater to a wide range of businesses while providing high quality spaces and amenity, all of which we were proud to deliver to the highest standards.
"Bonython is in a class of its own and I’m proud Stevens Construction has been recognised for our role in bringing this outstanding development to life."
A 14-storey luxury mixed use development, Bonython Tower is being heralded as a catalyst for the revitalisation of the Gosford CBD. It features 1200 square metres of commercial space, 54 boutique apartments, two luxury penthouses and the region’s largest event and dining venue, The Bon Pavilion.
Paul Anderson, Bonython Property and Investment Group executive chairman, says the the design and construction excellence Stevens Construction brought to the project have been paramount to its success.
"We wanted only the best for a development of this calibre and scale that was destined to kick-start the re-emergence of the entire Gosford CBD," he says.
"So, naturally we went straight to the top. We wanted to work with companies who understood the nature of our local environment and what we were trying to achieve with Bonython Tower – and the risks involved if we didn’t get it right.
"Working with local entities with a renowned reputation for excellence, including CKDS Architects and Stevens Construction, meant we were going to deliver the best possible outcome in terms of quality and innovation for a development of this standard."
Stevens Construction's next job will be Bonython Group's next luxury Gosford development, Ravello. Work will commence in the coming weeks.
